What's New on the New Release of VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery (April 2021)?

VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery is VMware's on-demand disaster recovery service that is delivered as an easy-to-use SaaS solution and offers cloud economics to keep your disaster recovery costs under control.

What's New as of April 27, 2021?

  • Smaller entry point for customers wanting faster recovery times (2-node Pilot Light clusters now supported)
  • More flexible consumption and payment options (a new 5 TiBs / 25 VMs monthly paid pilot SKU, support for a monthly payment option for term subscriptions)
  • Faster recovery times (improved Storage vMotion performance during data rehydration, accelerated cache in the scale-out cloud file system)
  • New regions supported in South America, Europe, and Asia (São Paulo, Stockholm, and Seoul VMware Cloud on AWS regions)
  • Better replication and failback performance (AWS Direct Connect (Public VIF) support for replication and failback traffic)
  • DR protection for applications already running in VMware Cloud on AWS (VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC as a source site)
  • Greater scalability for customers with large environments (federated management of multiple instances)
